  • Wanted to thank Black Cat for making one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had

    The game is excellent guys, I was totally floored how great it was.

    It seems many games nowadays have gotten weak in the terms of difficultly. It's sad when a game that could be very challenging was toned down to appease a wider audience.

    So far (on normal mode) the game has been extremely hard, and I couldn't be happier. Every day I've been gathering a group of people from a message board I post on to continue our campaign. I've never seen a game cause so much teamwork and precision before.

    We literally have to know every inch of the map, every crawlspace where a bug or parasite will come out just so we all can make it out alive. It's really something special when a game's difficulty causes a group to be so well organized.

    Though I've seen plenty of people give up out of frustration, or cry out that the game's difficulty is too hard. But I unlike these poeple don't think this game should be a cakewalk where you just blaze through without any thought of your actions or where your teammates are. When a game is like that I feel like nothing has been accomplished, no challenge was given, all it was was a pretty bloodbath to tingle the senses.

    I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but again I thank you again for such a gaming experience and hope to see what's instore for future installments of Alien Swarm. I also hope the difficulty remains intact and that more people share my feelings about this game.

    Thank you,

                        Yeah thx alot to the BlackCat developers. You have produced a truly awesome mod and I cant wait to see what you might have in the bagage for any upcoming patch or bonus pack

                        I can say that I have a friend that had no plans at all to buy UT2k4 but when he heard me talking about Alien Swarm he started to really consider to buy UT2k4 because he thought it sounded totally awesome. Everyone that I have showed this mod has just been astonished by how cool it looks and sounds.

                        So a big CHEERS to the team !!!

                          Yep...I've only been playing since yesterday, but I'm already gobsmacked at just how professional this mod is, and how well it plays.

                          And, boy, despite being pretty darn good at 'vanilla' UT2K4, do I suck at AS.

                          (As an aside: I assume that Alien Swarm maps are prefixed 'AO' to avoid conflicts with AsSault maps. But why 'O'?)
                          Hey, what's that white dot on the circle-thingy meaGARRRGH!!!

                            To make you ask that very question.
                            Nearly all men can stand adversity -- if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.
